At a Glance

Board a “hotel barge” exclusively chartered for a small Road Scholar group to experience the storied French region of Burgundy. Burgundy is famously home to some of the world’s most renowned vineyards but it has much more to offer: charming villages, artistic masterpieces and wonderful rural and forest landscapes. The canals the barge travels are like quiet back roads that give an up-close perspective on the land. Begin your journey with two nights in Paris.
